I, Ripper

ripper.png Hey y’all! Well, I just finished up this thrilling reimagining of the Jack the Ripper murders through Jack’s own point of view weaved in with the perspective of a newspaper journalist. I couldn’t stop turning the pages of Jack’s chilling descriptions of the murders he recorded down in his diary, “When I cut the woman’s throat, her eyes betrayed not pain, not fear, but utter confusion.” 

The details of the events surrounding the ghastly London murders given through the dueling viewpoints lend an insightful glimpse into the botched investigations by the authorities, the exploitation by the newspapers, and the dangers face by the lower class, fallen women of the Victorian era. This book will definitely keep you on your toes, while you examine the given clues of the case as if you were Sherlock himself trying to identify the murderer!
